    So I posted some topics on here about my chukar egg pipping but it was going into the 30 hour range. It died and when i took it apart I seen that one of its legs was a lil stump and the other had only one toe? So i have another egg pipping is it going to be the same way. what could cause a deformed chukar like that ?

    I’m sorry that your lil chukar was deformed I guess it was best that he didn't make it seeing as he would of had a very hard life ahead of him and you would of had to make some very hard decision concerning keeping him alive or not, maybe it was just a one time thing and your other chukar will be fine, sorry I can't help at all but I am sending good vibes your way and to your other lil chukar [​IMG] good luck oh and [​IMG]
  3. There is a good chance that this second chick will be normal. Hoping that all your eggs from now on hatch vigorous healthy chicks!
